He also has a passion for horse racing and includes 40 horses among his assets.
Last year Mr Dobson bought out Manchester United ex-chairman, Martin Edwards' £12m stake in the club, making him one of two men with ties to the club
to enter the list.
The second is Sir Alex Ferguson, joint thirteenth on the Scottish newcomers list and 976th overall, with an estimated fortune of £30m.
The Glasgow born Manchester United manager has made his fortune recently with a half share in retired race horse Rock of Gibraltar, as well as securing a new three year contract worth £11m.

Joining Sir Alex on the list is former Eurythmics singer, Annie Lennox, also ranked joint thirteenth newcomer and 976th overall with an estimated fortune of £30m.
